I know they use some Shilen blanks others also. If you see a barrel you like or want more info on one contact them they are great folks to talk to.

Re: White oak

The White Oak Armament barrels are Wilsons. They are quite good. A lot of the high power rifle competitors use them. They are fully capable of taking you to the stage at the National Matches. I and many of my friends earned our Distinguished Rifleman badges with them. That being said, John will use any barrel you want. My last 2 were Kreigers. He has also done a bunch of Pac-Nors and a Shilen for me. The work has been consistently first rate.

Re: White oak

Bear in mind, you're talking about being a month and a half out from Perry; John's kinda busy right now. We had our State Service Rifle Match in St. Louis the week before last, a match that John and company have usually attended in the past. They didn't make it this time, and it's likely that a heavy workload is why. You're dealing with a guy who is himself a competitive shooter, and caters primarily to the competitive shooting market. Send him work in November or December, and don't be surprised if it shows up done in very short order. Send him work three or four months before the Nationals, and you're likely to get caught up in backlog.
